10. Chocolate Martini

Chocolate Martini

The Chocolate Martini can satisfy you and your girlfriends’ sweet cravings. This is made by mixing hard alcohol with a chocolatey component, whether liqueur or cocoa powder. 

This cocktail can also double as a delicious dessert, and we have to say we don’t feel as guilty after having this as if we were to have a slice of cake. But how many shots are in a Martini?

9. Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary

The Bloody Mary is a popular drink that you’ll often see alongside brunches, but it’s also a great option to order at bars. 

This savory-sour cocktail is made with vodka, tomato juice, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce, garnished with a celery stick.

8. Pina Colada

Piña Colada

The Pina Colada is one of the most gorgeous drinks once it’s set up, as it’s always served with decorations such as cherries and tiny umbrellas. 

This popular drink is made with rum, coconut milk, and pineapple juice, so you can only imagine how refreshing this would taste. It can be prepared either shaken with ice cubes or blended like a smoothie. 

7. Mai Tai

Mai Tai

Tiki-themed restaurants and bars would probably have Mai Tai [1], which means “out of this world” in English. This classic cocktail is made with dark rum, lime juice, orange liquor, and orgeat syrup for a tangy, summery drink.

6. Sangria 


Sangria is a no-brainer when it comes to cocktails ladies can order.

And even if you’re not at a bar, it’s fairly easy to whip one up at home — all you need is good quality red wine, chopped fruits of your choice, and a large pitcher to put everything in.

This refreshing drink originated in Spain and Portugal, with its name derived from the Sanskrit word “sakkari,” meaning “sugared wine.” Here’s the best type of wine for Sangria

5. Margarita


Margarita is a classic bar staple that all of us probably have had at some point in our lives — not just girls’ night. It is made from a simple mixture of tequila, triple sec, and lime juice, shaken or stirred together, and served in a dainty cocktail glass.

It’s also fairly easy to fix drinks up for you and your girlfriends if you decide to stay in and still have fun.

4. Sex on the Beach

Sex on the Beach

The Sex on the Beach cocktail is the brainchild of Ted Pizio, a Florida bartender who was looking to promote peach schnapps.

He named it after “sex” and “the beach,” which were the main reasons kids loved going to Florida for spring break so much. 

Contrary to its raunchy name, this is a fruity and tangy cocktail drink made by mixing vodka, orange juice, cranberry juice, and peach schnapps. This tropical drink reminds us of many beach escapades with our girlfriends during university days. 

3. Cosmopolitan


The Cosmopolitan is probably the most popular drink for women at a bar, with massive thanks mainly to Sex and the City for popularizing it.

This simple drink tastes amazing and is synonymous with elite, classy women working powerful corporate jobs. [2

t goes down smoothly and is definitely easy on the palate, so you can dance and enjoy the night away without worrying that you’ll get tipsy quickly. 

Aside from being a refreshing, fun drink, the classic Mojito is also colorless, so there’s less staining in case you accidentally spill some on yourself while having fun and dancing.

We love how Mojitos are even white-dress friendly! 


What is the most feminine drink to order at a bar?

The Strawberry Daiquiri tops our list of being the most feminine drink to order at a bar. It’s dainty and pink, with plenty of pretty strawberries as decorations. But what’s the most masculine drink you can order at a bar?

What is a classy drink to order for a woman?

We would think that the Cosmopolitan is a classy drink for women to order at bars. This is a drink popularized by the It Girls from Sex and the City, who are all classy, elegant, and powerful women. 

What should a female beginner drinker order at a bar?

Female beginner drinkers should start with ordering something tame and easy on the palate, such as the classic Mojito or Gin and Tonic. These cocktail drinks won’t get you drunk too quickly and have few calories to boot. 

Final Say 

And those are our top ten best cocktails women can order at bars, with the classic Mojito topping the list. 

The classic Mojito is made with a simple mixture of white rum, lime juice, soda water, sugar, and mint, making it super refreshing and tasty even for beginner palates.

We loved ordering Mojitos in bars because they didn’t get us drunk quickly as we danced throughout the night, and it’s basically transparent — less staining on our dresses in case of accidents.
